House Slab Preparation
2 May 2003

first excavation
Erik Vorzaart of Bushblend Homes , Healesville is going to erect the pole frame of the house.
He said he would start work at the beginning of May. Today is 2 May and Erik turns up to peg out ready
for excavation which he says will begin on Monday.
I do love it when people do as they promise!

excavation
But we didn't have to wait until Monday! George Tromp (also of Healesville)
was already hard at work when we arrived on Saturday.

setting out foundation
As the levels are formed and the trenches dug, it's all beginning to take shape.

concrete slab preparation
With the boxing in place and the mesh in the trenches,
we just need the weather to hold until the concrete is poured.
